In Memoriam: Leonard Rosenman (1924-2008)

I know that in my previous post, I promised to upload the soundtrack to The Last Starfighter, but earlier today, I learned that one of my favorite film score composers passed away today.

Leonard Rosenman, known for his scores to such films as East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause (both 1955), Fantastic Voyage (1966), Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), passed away of a heart attack at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. He was 83.

In his memory, I post the score that made me a fan of his works.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (NBX Special Edition)


This NBXSE features all the tracks from the MCA Records commercial release plus the song "I Hate You" by Edge of Etiquette in both unedited and edited forms.
